ESEA Title I, 1971-1972 Achievement. [New York State].
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Urban and Community Programs Evaluation.
During 1971-72, the State of New York was allotted $193,459,929 for Title I, Elementary Secondary Education Act projects for children in low income areas to be conducted by local education agencies. The State initiated the effort to meet the educational needs of disadvantaged learners. This report describes the nature of the target population by such factors as grade intervals, degree of deficiency, ethnic origin, demographic considerations, etc. Included also are descriptive statistics addressing the types and numbers of staff, the means by which students are selected, the degree to which compensatory education teachers and paraprofessionals receive inservice training, and the relationship of Title I funded activities with other sources of categorical aid. The larger portion of the report concentrates on the degree to which treatments, formulated according to approved district proposals, were implemented. The focus of the report is on the degree to which specific objectives in the basic skill areas of instruction were achieved. Therefore the overriding question surrounding compensatory aid is: Is there evidence that educationally disadvantaged learners achieved more growth in basic skills than would have occurred if the Title I dollars had not been expended on remedial treatments?
